Maybe the boys should be the ones to stand out this time, red purple and pink. The girls can wear the charcoal grey!

now I feel really bad

Thanks eeh, and every one else for your support, but I hate to say that I had to cancel my interview tomorrow.

With wife and 16 year old son here in Vic, we had to sit down over the past few days and really try and work out a few things. Me going up there (if I was successful) and living in Syd was going to be a big ask - so we thought we would hold back till about Jan and see if MAM or QCCA comes through with a MEL base.

If not, I will be SO desperate for this job by then that I'll try for another interview straight away.

After contacting the Recruitment Team yesterday (still trying to decide up until last night) they had said "we would like you to resubmit application as soon as you're ready" - so that sounds promising.

Sorry to bore everybody here, but thanks again for the support and good wishes, and good luck to those who do attend tomorrow.
(think I'll go and feel sorry for myself now...)

Facebook site

Congratulations wrx712...that's great news!!! You must be very happy after such a loooooong wait...lol

I 've just had a quick look on the facebook site (search: V Australia crew). It makes for a VERY interesting read but I highly recommend NOT to post on it (in case V Australia HR read it - and I'm sure they will!!). Thanks wrx712 for the tip...I'm going back to read more now and find out who is attending my Ground School.

This is not to burst anyones excitement in being successful in their new job/careers.... there is a matter of passing your 5+ weeks training and examinations. Failure rate domestically is about 1-2 per a class. Please ensure you study hard and not to balls up the best in life that you have been striving for.

Congrats in being successful!
